The Society of Enlightened Dragonologist

Theresa and Cheri M. have asked me to comment on their launch of the Society of Enlightened Dragonologists . I, being a dragon of considerable age, can tell you ‘It is about time!’

I look forward to my two friends (I hope I can count Cheri among my friends and not trespass on what Keensight sees as ‘his property.’ He appears to be a very territorial dragon) setting long held misconceptions to rights. Let me expound…

I do not, and never have, eaten a human. In my land the type that could possibly push me to such an extreme action are not to be consumed by any rational dragon. Personal hygiene is not of top priority for blustering dragon slayers. This is not to say that I have not roasted, stomped on, clawed, or bitten my share of humans during battle. War always brings casualties and Dragons are very difficult to kill. For humans sometimes you are the poker, but most times you are the one being poked.

I also would appreciate it being set to rights that I DO NOT eat domesticated animals, this includes your dog, cat, rabbits, chickens, sheep, goats, cow, donkey, and horses. I happen to like wild game, elk being my favorite. ::licks muzzle with long pink tongue at the mere thought of a hindquarter of elk:: They are large enough to make them worth the killing. 

I also happen to have a cat of my own, Flutterby , and I am acquainted with several horses which I am on first name basis, Theresa’s sometimes annoying steed, Knicker, and Sarah’s mare Tolly. Both worth the time to pass a few words with if encountered.

There was heavy discussion among the ladies on Twitter that I might take exception and eat their sheep. I assure you that the wool is very repulsive and tends to get stuck in your teeth. My word, they went on about it. They were making armor for the little beasties and having jousting contests to get them ready for defending themselves. My lovely Maltese temptress, took the photo below to prove that I do not eat sheep. Note, they are placidly grazing. (Thank you Sweetheart! ::throws wing kisses:: )

And yes, I know Keensight often threatens to eat Cheri’s goats, but he also threatens to eat her on occasion and she is still here. ::grins::

So I raise a wing and salute to the forming of the Society of Enlightened Dragonologist! My vast reservoir of knowledge is at your service, ladies. May you bring our clans, culture and history into the light of the 21st century.

Authorgraphs Anyone??

Morning Everyone,

You can now have your own Authorgraphed copy of any of my Chronicles.

Max, a close friend of mine in Italy, requested the Authorgraph for my book 'James & the Dragon.'

He sent me a photo of the page when he received it.
(Theresa actually does them. Dragon paws can't hold pens ::grins toothy smile:: )

Why don't you get your own Authorgraph? Just click on the link to the right, pick your book and it shall be done ::ruffles wings in satisfaction::

Free Flight

Greetings Everyone,

Recently Clearair, my mate, has been listening to me dictate my memoirs to Theresa. She is writing the sixth volume of my Chronicles. I also have been telling her about my adventures with Timenall when I was very young. This has led Clearair to wonder about my many travels when I was younger before I settled in the Kingdom of the Last Dragons. She has asked that I take her on an extended vacation to see the lands and skies of my youth. I am looking forward to sharing my memories with Clearair. *sighs and grins wistfully*

James has agreed to watch over Anna, our daughter, and see that she stays out of trouble. Theresa says she will keep an eye on both of them while we are gone. *winks at Theresa*

*Wrinkles brow and frowns slightly* The only thing I regret is that I am going to have to give up my Follow Farloft Friday's on Twitter. This does not mean I will be deserting my friends. *paws ground in thought* I will be dictating some of my memories, as they surface while Clearair and I visit my youthful haunts. Theresa will transcribe these and place them on my blog.

Theresa will keep track of the Contest entries in my Follow Farloft Give-Away. As I promised, she will see that there is a winner each month of a full set of my Farloft Chronicles. So, keep those pictures of my Farloft pins coming in. You too could win a set of my Chronicles. *Ruffles wings and folds them back in place*

I will periodically jump back for a quick visit. There will be some exciting things happening, which I don't want to miss, toward the end of the summer. I am going to meet with an artist and she is going to have me pose for several portraits, which Theresa will post on Twitter, Facebook and other media links. My newest Chronicle will be published toward the end of the summer. I am afraid I have slowed down Theresa's progress on that volume due to my telling her the story of my adventures with Timenall. She will get back on track later this month. *reaches out and curves a wing around Theresa*

So dear friends, wish me well on my travels and keep me in your hearts. I will be in and out through the rest of the year and periodically surprise you with a visit. ::grins and waves a wing in farewell:: Huggles to all.

Hi Kite,

I am so pleased you agreed to do my portraits. Here are a few that have been done in the past.
My book cover shows me in my storytelling pose, this is probably my Best portrait:

My twitter picture:
I also have fun and Sarah caught me a bit in 'my cups' at Christmas time:
I am about 13,000 pound and as big as this elephant in relation to the average human:
I have various shades of green from forest to lime green scales. My eyes are golden unless I am angry and then they turn amber. I am old and wise, but have a young heart.
